I'm trying to install R on an IBM P570 running Redhat Enterprise Linux 
v4.  When I run ./configure, I see:

checking for tclConfig.sh... no
checking for tclConfig.sh in library (sub)directories... 
checking for tkConfig.sh... no
checking for tkConfig.sh in library (sub)directories... 
checking tcl.h usability... yes
checking tcl.h presence... yes
checking for tcl.h... yes
checking tk.h usability... yes
checking tk.h presence... yes
checking for tk.h... yes
checking whether compiling/linking Tcl/Tk code works... no

I have the tcl and tk rpms installed and the configure script does find 
them properly.  Why can it not compile/link Tck/Tk code?
